Overnight, both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle stepped out wearing matching blue outfits to separate events with their husbands.

While Meghan went to Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance for the first time with Prince Harry, Kate surprised those at the National Emergencies Trust launch in London by turning up with Prince William, who was the only royal expected to visit.

Kate looked to one of her favourite designers for the occasion – Emilia Wickstead – wearing a long-sleeve blue dress with a belt, a black Aspinal of London clutch and black patent Gianvito Rossi pumps, while Meghan wore a textured blue coat with black knee high boots and a fascinator.


Kate’s dress perfectly matched Princess Diana’s sapphire earrings which were given to her as a gift by Prince William in 2011, the same year they married. The jewellery also matches Kate’s engagement ring, which once belonged to Diana, too.
